would be yes but will have to say

maybe due to dates

if its a one day trip it would be better

4.5m only a 40 hp 28 knots hurts like hell in the rough

Greetings each.

Bit of a trek for me to come down, but I've always been tempted by the southern seas!

Depending on dates, and a pass out from she who likes to be obeyed I may come down.

Peter

Date

Hi all,

I'm well suprised by the number of people wanting to do it.

How about August. In fact a Sunday in August so Nemo can come along. At this time I am going to provisionally pick the 8th August with the 15th August as a backup.

July I think is going to be all washed out.

I will keep an eye on the long range weather forecast and just hope that things settle down by then.

Any body fancy those dates.

Regards Nick R.

Can some bigger boats come too? Just for the crack? I'm only 5.35 with a 75 on! Would be up for it, knowing i had people with me but I'm in the middle, neither small or big really boat wise.

Planning

I'm away for a couple of days now down on the Solent.

But Monday night I will post a thread with more info.

This will have High Tides, Possible Launch Sites, Distances, Waypoints, VHF Callsigns and Frequencies, and Itinery etc.

Regards Nick R.
